In order to replace the crystal on your watch you are going to have to remove the entire movement and use a watch press to remove the crystal.
this is not an easy job and should be done by a professional
First you will need to get a watch back opener to unscrew the back of your Tag. The three slots should fit into the back of the watch. tighten the opener until it is firmly on. then turn counter close wise until back of case comes off.
Next you will need to remove the watch hand and crown. Becareful doing this for pressing to hard will break your set leveler. You will need a thin pin pusher and look on the back of the movement for an arrow pointing toward a hole in the movement. Push down and at the same time pull the stem and crown out of movement. turn the watch right side up and the watch movement should fall out. Place movement on a very safe spot so not to damage movement or dial
now you will you be ready to remove crystal Since it is a friction crystal you will need to do use a watch case press . find two die that fit exactly the watch and crystal use a scooped side and place it on the bottom side of the watch press. Next use a flat die to place on top of the case press. place the watch face down. you will be pushing the watch crystal out from the top. Press down on the level and check to see if the crystal came loose, keep doing so till the crystal comes out.
finally you will need to measure the thickness and diameter of the crystal and find the exact size. I believe this watch has a sapphire crystal so you will need a sapphire crystal too.
Once you buy the proper crystal it is time to put the it in the watch. Place the watch face up in your watch press. and slip the crystal in through the top making sure its perfectly even all around. Slowly push down on the leveler until proper pressure is applied and the crystal snaps in.
Now you have new crystal . Clean crystal thoroughly and the inside of the case. Place watch upside down carefully place movement back in. slide spacer in . Now slide watch stem and crown back in push down again on the set leveler with pin pusher.
Place case cover on back and tighten properly to prevent water or moisture from entering and you are done.
This repair should be done by a professional especially on such a nice watch. Any watchmaker can do this job and will have the tools to do it properly

Need a new glass for men's seconds watch


I assume you mean a Sekonda watch.
Watches from large scale manufacturers like Sekonda come with a wide range of glass sizes. 30mm diameter is a common one, but you would need to remove the glass in one piece to measure it. Watch glasses are commonly in 0.5mm steps (e.g. 30.0mm, 30.5mm,31.00 mm etc.) and may have rounded or bevelled edges so it is often very difficult to determine the exact size without removing the glass.
Additionally, there is the thickness of the glass to consider.
Finally, the 'glass' may be plastic, mineral glass or sapphire crystal.
All in all, you will have to know how to remove the back of the watch, how to remove the crown and stem in order to remove the movement, how to remove the glass in one piece, how to fit a replacement glass, how to refit the movement, how to refit the crown and stem and how to refit the back.
Alternatively, take it to a watch repair centre - you'll still have a working watch after they've finished with it.....

My casio mdv-701 accidently dropped n da glass shattered in the inner part. Service centre does not have the glass for relacement. How can i change the glass for this watch?


In case service center is telling that they don't have glass for your watch then tell them that you are going to approach the HQs of casio and complain regarding this service center that they are not keeping parts for most of the products. This trick works most of the time. Secondly, you can contact any of the local glass experts in your city alongwith your watch. They can measure and cut out a piece of glass for your watch or also you can contact any of local watch maker who can check out if he has any glass piece measuring the same size.

I have a sector urban oversize watch 3H case diameter 4.8mm with a broken watch glass crystal.I would like you to inform me of the replacement glass diameter and thickness i should choose to fit the...


I cant inform about the exact size of the watch glass by the model or number of the case. For that you need to use micrometer to measure the thickness and diameter of glass. Most sommon thickness is 1mm. If the glass is broke, measure the thickness of any broken leftover and then the diameter by puting the calliper arms into watches groove for glass.

Need a glass for my timex expedition watch. What size will I need & are they reasonably easy to fit.


No problem with it. Any watch repair shop will order exact size glass for your watch and will fit it. Fitting is easy if you have special glass fitting press. No way to replace watch glass without this tool. Visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for new glass. Rate me,plz.

Glass that covers the face of the watch is shattered-$ to replace


I am not sure about prices in US, but over here in England we charge £15 - £25 for mineral glass (depending on size, thickness, e.t.c.) and £50 - £120 for sapphire glass. As for today: £1 = 1.60$. Doesn't matter how you name it - glass or crystal, both are right.
